About The YellowJacket
Meet the Editors:
|Editor in Chief | Carly Robinson
I am a small town girl with a global perspective. If my writing is good, I must credit semicolons and synonyms. My mind works by connections and details, but always as a means to get to the heart of the issue. I am passionate about God, truth, and people, and am seeking to understand all three.
If I could spend an afternoon with five historical figures, they would be Queen Victoria, Saint John, Anne Frank, C. S. Lewis, and Steve McQueen. But not all at once!
I like quotes by G. K. Chesterton, puns and those who deliver corny ones dryly, hot tea, the smells of leather and of rain, Legos, dancing, and colors.
I dislike alarm clocks, grammatical errors and those who are anal-retentive about them, wasted time, unnecessary hurry, and apathy.

Meet the Staff:
|Writer | Matt Barr
Has been with the YellowJacket Newspaper longer than any other reporter, is RA of the 3B Apes, and is generally awesome. So awesome, in fact, that he didn't feel the need to fill out an "about me" form for himself. But editors are great at filling in their staff's writing, right?

Given Names: RACHELLE (pronounced: Rah-shell)
Nationality: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Date of birth: Try stalker net…Place of birth: IVORY COASTSocial Security
Number: Ha ha, nice try…On a serious note, I keep a skeleton in my closet; I have a fire in my room (Of course it’s not real. Who do you think I am anyways?); and I own shelves of books that I have not had the chance to read since coming to LeTourneau, an African hat that I have not yet needed to wear under the Texan sun, and a handbag made in Papua New Guinea. Yes, I believe that pretty much sums it up
|Writer | Deborah Palmer
Nationality: Complicated, for History Buffs the closest thing to an Austria-Hungarian, except if you meet my brother, which you probably have. Ethnically, I'm half Jamaican and half Ethiopian. If you look at my arm you can see the borderline of my parentage.Hobbies: Movies, Books, Music, basically any form of storytelling.Role in Staff: Officially Movie reviewer, will take other assignments though.Other: If I ever had a documentary film made about me, I would insist that my profile pic be the poster, if only to fool the audience into thinking their watching a spy movie. Major is English, and I hope to become a world famous author. Or at least the person who prevents hacks from getting paid. I used to play the clarinet, but then I got disinterested (read:lazy). For some reason, I find bushbabies hilarious. This paragraph is very disorganized, kind of like me.

Ask me nicely and I will take your picture and play a short song for you on the ukulele.
